Viewing test suite reports
Estimated reading time: 6 minutes
Katalon Studio is designed to ease many challenges that manual testers are facing. In a large project, there may be hundreds or even thousands of test cases and test executions. Test suite reports produced by Katalon Studio allow users to monitor their test status and have a better understanding of their project’s test coverage. This guide will give you an overview of reports and related supported basic functions.
Once a test suite finishes its execution, a historical report is automatically generated and stored in the Reports section of Tests Explorer. Test suite execution reports are placed in chronological order with the most recent one on top.
The report will be named with following the naming convention: YYYYMMDD_HHmmss, which is the datetime when the test suite starts its execution.
In Test Explorer view, double-click on a historical execution of a test suite to view its details:
|Test Cases Table||List of executed test cases.|
|Summary||Summary information of executed environment.|
Settings for execution which include information about how to handle a failed test case, page loading timeout, etc. For example:
Information concerning the execution environment, including Host Name, Operating System (os), Katalon Studio version, browser, etc. For example:
Test Cases List
- The Test Case Table displays the list of all executed test cases in a test suite. If data-driven testing is used, each test case will be executed through a number of times (iterations) that are defined in the Data Iteration column of the current test suite as shown in the steps No. 5 to 7 below.
Users can easily determine what information to display by using the filters.
|Passed||Show only iterations which are passed.|
|Failed||Show only iterations which are failed.|
|Error||Show only iterations having errors.|
|Incomplete||Show only incomplete iterations|
- By selecting an iteration in Test Case Table and click Show Test Case Details, you can view details regarding its executed logs.
- If qTest and JIRA are configured in Project Settings, you can submit the results to these systems. Refer to qTest Integration and JIRA Integration for more details.

Export to other formats
For the purpose of sharing, users can generate reports of test suites into other formats such as HTML, CSV, PDF and JUnit using the context menu in Test Explorer as the example below:
Katalon Studio’s Reports feature allows users to have an overview of test execution by providing most important details and necessary information from PASSED/FAILED result to details on the execution environment, test summary, or logs. Using this information, test managers and QAs can better manage and track test activities, resulting in improved testing productivity.
